Training Young Orchestra Musicians in the Chicago Southland since 1962
SYSO welcomes students at any level - from absolute beginner to advanced - to improve their skills and hone their musicianship through participation in ensembles designed to let them learn, rehearse, and perform with their peers.
There are three major concerts every season, plus other performance and educational opportunities throughout the year.
SYSO is an affordable opportunity for students to develop not only musical, but also cognitive skills that will provide benefits for a lifetime. Full season tuition ranges from $280 to $420. Financial aid and scholarships are available to qualified students.
